Calculating driveway to Garage Breakover Clearance
Clearance = Clearance required in center of wheelbase in inches
Rise = slope of driveway ramp in inches per foot
Wheelbase = distance between wheel centers in feet
Note: Assumes level garage floor.
By my calculations: Clearance = 1/4 x Wheelbase x Rise
